Trump merchandise sales skyrocket as Dems provide so much fodder for new designs

Though the infamous and now thoroughly debunked Russian collusion delusion conspiracy theory made a mockery of America’s justice system and cost taxpayers $30 million, it did produce one serendipitous side-effect: a fabulous new “line” of swag.

Available for sale everywhere, from eBay to Amazon to President Donald Trump’s own website, this new “line” of swag is designed to mock congressional Democrats, their media allies and their deranged base for having fallen for the greatest conspiracy theory of the 21st century.

Over on the president’s website, for instance, conservatives can purchase collusion delusion swag ranging from t-shirts with the words “collusion delusion” emblazoned on them to even an automobile decal that contains a literal screenshot of the tweet the president sent immediately after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian collusion concluded two months ago.

“No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!” he tweeted on March 24, a day after the Mueller investigation concluded.

There’s also a t-shirt containing the tweet:

While this gear has reportedly been available for purchase since March, sales skyrocketed after a redacted version of Mueller’s final report was published by the Department of Justice last month.

“Our Mueller-related merchandise has been doing exceptionally well. Our supporters are even more energized,” the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump said to the New York Post.

“President Trump is a branding master and all of the best ideas come from his messaging and tweets,” his 2020 campaign spokeswoman Erin Perrine reportedly added.

But by no means is the president the only one profiting from the left’s collusion delusion. If you by any chance plan to purchase “collusion delusion” gear on Amazon, plan to spend hours scrolling through pages upon pages of gear, including t-shirts, sweaters, cups and decals like this:

To be fair, Amazon contains a similar quantity of “Lock Him Up” gear. The only problem is that this gear’s message is based on the conspiracy theory that Mueller’s investigation would lead to the president’s indictment, conviction and sentencing to prison. That of course never happened.

According to the 448-page Mueller report that was released last month, “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” Nor did the evidence “establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.”

What remains unclear is why, if there’s no evidence to prove collusion, was the Russian collusion investigation ever launched in the first place? Some believe it was a politically motivated hit job planned before the 2016 presidential election and designed to remove Trump from office were he to defeat then-Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, which he ultimately did.

Because of concerns over the legality of the Russia probe, Attorney General Bill Barr has launched an investigation to determine whether the investigation and those actions that contributed to its launch — namely, the surveillance of Trump’s top campaign officials by former President Barack Hussein Obama’s Department of Justice — were “adequately predicated.”

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowtiz has meanwhile been busy investigating whether the Obama administration’s use of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to obtain a surveillance warrant on Trump’s campaign had itself been legal.

Based on Barr and Horowitz’ potential findings, it’s very possible that the right may soon be producing its own “Lock Him Up” gear, albeit for vastly different reasons than the left.

Why? Because there’s a chance — however slim — that former President Obama and his top officials, including disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan, could soon be the ones facing prosecution and even incarceration.

As for the collusion delusion gear, it’s also being sold at BuckTee, Etsy, TeePublic, RedBubble, Tee Shirt Palace and dozens (if not hundreds) of other sites. Apparently, the American people are eager to recoup the estimated $30 million that was effectively wasted investigating Russian collusion:

The latter user made a great point. Many argue Mueller should have taken the time to investigate the origins of his own probe, i.e., Obama’s surveillance efforts, the infamous Steele dossier paid for by Clinton, etc. Instead, he focused his efforts solely on Trump for reasons that remain unclear.
